Jumbo shrimp broiled and served in a garlic butter sauce with a hint of fresh oregano and seasoned bread crumbs. Perfect to dip our Italian bread in!
Jumbo shrimp sautéed with garlic, fresh in a white wine butter sauce. Served with tagliatelle
Johnny's Arancini Siciliani
A Sicilian delight! Silky Arborio rice stuffed with creamy melted mozzarella cheese, slow simmered ground beef and spring peas. Fried crispy and delicious!
Great find on our way home from the races in Saratoga. What a hidden gem of a town, and restaurant! Food was great, portions were LARGE.
The food and service were excellent. The bread was fresh and warm, delicious! I am not from the area but hope to return one day!
Steak Amalfi was a little tough, but caprese was awesome and the shrimp/clams oreganato was amazing. Gelato cake is the best thing ever.
This is one of our favorite restaurants and it did not disappoint! Our server Canan (Jonna) was FANTASTIC. Very attentive waitstaff, took the time to treat us special and the food was, as always 10 out of 10.
Bar staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Table service very attentive ( especially for these crazy times) and the food was fresh and delicious.
I read reviews and was a little nervous about going. And have out of town guests meet me there. The service and food was great. My only concern it was a warm July evening and there was no air conditioning on in the restaurant. It made a little uncomfortable. I don't tolerate heat well.
Johnnys is always great to go to. But I ordered the Caesar salad and it had tons of croutons, I mean like 50. Very strange, I guess I should’ve took a picture. Ordered the Belgian waffle dessert, delicious. I definitely would go back again
Expensive, but perfect for celebratory night out. Outstanding service, delicious food. A+
Johnny's has gone downhill a bit in recent years, but it's still a great value for homemade pasta and delicious food. The dessert special was fantastic!
Great food and service
Good Italian-American restaurant. Decent food at reasonable prices.
Delicious meal from start to finish! Our server was friendly and helpful with dining selections, even though it seems as though you can’t go wrong with any menu choice. Homemade mozzarella is so, so good, and killer carrot cake dessert! Even midweek, make your reservation early. They fill up quick for good reason!
Delicious Italian food and friendly staff. Large portions to share an entree for two.
Great food and service
Filet Pocini and lobster tails were amazing. We had a great meal.
The food was very good and good portions. The service was very attentive. Would recommend.
The food was fantastic. Arancini was delicious. Pasta was wonderful and the red sauce was amazing. To top it off, the service was top notch. Jo jo was a fantastic and personable server.
As usual, Johnny’s doesn’t disappoint! The food, service and atmosphere is why Johnny’s is our favorite go to place for special occasions and just a simple night out with family or friends.
Delicious food ... great service ... close to everything in downtown!
Amazing! Food and service was great!
We love dining at Johnny's. Great selection of good food and a very welcoming staff & atmosphere.
Awesome place each time we go.
We have never had a bad meal at Johnny’s. Our server, Bobby, was lovely.
Food was great! All staff were very friendly. Kitchen was very slow. Waited almost an hour for entree.
Service was beyond incredible. Food was mediocre at best. Appetizer of calamari as excellent and the garlic aioli was delicious. Bread was stale and warmed up, pizza was on a par with greasy, floppy crusted frozen pizza. Yes, Deguerno would have been better. Veal was pretty but greasy and very little flavor. A lot of money for an appetizer. Not rushing back again soon
Delicious preparation with fresh food, light and flavorful marinara, and homemade pasta. Cannoli a real treat. Good wine list with fair pricing. Attentive service. An unrushed relaxing visit with a dear friend.
Johnny’s is always consistently good with service,quality,and value. We always have a great experience and highly recommend Johnny’s.
Our first visit to Johnny's...it will not be our last. Every aspect of the meal was a great experience: form the ambience to the food to the service.
Mother’s Day celebration was perfect, great food and wonderful service!
Had a nice, ladies dinner out for Mother's Day. Johnny's food and service does not disappoint. I booked on Open Table and asked for a table on the Jay Street side. They paid attention and had a nice table on that side of the restaurant. All food was hot and delicious. Waitstaff was friendly and outgoing. Can't wait to go back.
I have been a customer since their first day in business. The food, the ambience and the stellar service from the staff make this place a perfect 5 stars, every time. Joe D is my favorite server, followed by Jaimie. If you have either of these two rockstars taking care of you, then you are in for an amazing experience.
Exceptional food and exceptional service. My first time back since the pandemic and they did not disappoint. We were seated in the bar area ( as requested) so the noise level might have been a little high for some but that is easily remedied by sitting in the dinning room. It was a wonderful dinning experience.
Celebrating my aunt’s birthday. Service was perfect. Wine list is minimal with “usual” choices Veal delicious but chicken was dry and ended spice Will definitely go back
As always, we enjoyed our night.
Extended time to get meals. Loud atmosphere - apps were cold - dinners delicious - not inexpensive.
Great as usual our server was awesome even pregnant! So on top of everything ! Always a great time there
Service was painfully slow. We were not able to get drinks when desired. Dishes were on the salty side. Prices have gone up it seems. I will return to give another chance. But not what it used to be in our opinion. Thank you.
A nice neighborhood hangout with a decent happy hour
Overall, it was the most perfect evening! Service, food and all!
